RELAPSE PREVENTION PROGRAM (THE)
The urge to use alcohol or other drugs can be triggered by many factors, including work-related stress, family problems, mental health disorders, physical pain, and social or environmental events. Any one of these risk factors can set off a relapse.
Based on G. Alan Marlatt's widely used, evidence-based protocols, The Relapse Prevention Program (formerly titled Relapse Prevention Skills: Helping Clients Address High-Risk Factors) helps clients identify high-risk situations, work on responses and coping skills, and explore lifestyle factors that may increase vulnerability. By following this model, clinicians can customize a program based on each client's unique needs and minimize the risk of relapse.
Ideal for use in a variety of settings, this nine-unit program can be used in either individual or group sessions. It can be used as a stand-alone program or as a supplement to an existing program. This program includes this facilitator guide, client guides and worksheets on a CD-ROM, and a video that demonstrates successful ways to address common and critical risk factors that can lead to relapse.
